DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN—The neighbors are so excited about the impending rise of Trader Joe's that they're leaving love notes on the door. The best part is the drawing of the little man holding a bottle of two buck chuck. [Brownstoner]

CHELSEA—If a pop-up pops up for a year, is it really a pop-up? Ports 1961 designer Tia Cibani just launched a children's collection, Kicokids, with a store in the Chelsea Market (16th Street and Ninth Avenue.) It'll remain up until next August, but Cibani herself will only be popping in sporadically. Tomorrow's one of those days, so if you want tell her how much you loved the crazy headgear at last week's Ports show, stop by. [Racked Inbox]
